Those that dwell in Zion.
THE GOSPEL OF DENOMINATIONALISM vs THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM?
Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Please understand and consider that this revelation is in agreement with Philippians 2 and 3 and Hebrews 12 that speaks about the upward call of God in Christ unto mature sonship.
This is the Gospel of the Kingdom unveiled.
FOR THOSE WITH EARS TO HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING TO
WE ARE EXPERIENCING THE FINAL GENERATION CLASH OF KINGDOMS AND WE COME BY THE POWER OF THE VICTORY OF YESHUA GOD AND WE GIVE THE FOLLOWING KINGDOM OF GOD PROPHETIC TESTIMONY, PROCLAMATION AND DECLARATION THROUGHOUT THE EARTH.
1 The earth is YHWH’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of YHWH? or who shall stand in His set-apart place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from YHWH, and righteousness from the Elohim of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek Thy face, O Elohim of Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? YHWH strong and mighty, YHWH mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? YHWH of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah. (Quoted from the RNKJV – restored names King James version)
In verse 3 The question is asked; Who may ascend into the hill of Yahweh? Or who may stand in His holy place?
This high and holy place is the habitation of the Elohim eternal majestic God also declared by Him in Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Set-apart (holy); I dwell in the high and set-apart (holy) place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
He dwells with the humble and contrite ones and He resists the proud and those who are wise in their own eyes. He is God over all the earth and He is not coming to choose sides.
He is coming to take over through the judgment and the shaking of nations to draw men to repentance and to call this generation to pursue Him into His mountain, for again it shall be as during the time of the great EXODUS when God brought His people through Moses to mount Sinai.
God’s judgments shall be poured out upon Egypt (worldly) and the Babylonian religious systems of men as He explained to Charles Newbold “I said, “Lord, speak plainly to us. What is Babylon and what is Egypt?”
He answered, “Babylon is all that the carnal mind devises. It is the pride and arrogance and the haughtiness of man who exalts his own knowledge above the knowledge of God.
“As for Egypt, this is the flesh and all the lust thereof.
“Can you not see, My son, how the carnal mind has devised his own plan with all its traditions and labeled it church?
For generations men thought this was of Me and for Me, but it is not so. This is the harlot, the woman who sits on many waters, who pretends allegiance to Me, but she is widowed.
She is not My bride. Her deception is great. She has attained for herself the riches of this world.
She has lavished herself with fine buildings and calls them temples and cathedrals and synagogues and churches. She has dressed herself in royal robes which she wove by her own hands.
The linen I give is righteousness which has been purchased by My blood. She has accrued great riches with bank accounts and investments and have men bound to her by these things. She has purchased these things by the blood of martyrs.
“Everywhere you look, you can see the harlot. She is everywhere in men’s hearts. Men go after her, and she loves it so. She is not married, but has taken unto herself many lovers. She is defiled and those who sleep with her are defiled.
“Mercy and peace are with those who have eyes to see and ears to hear when the trumpets sound and the call goes forth, ‘Come out of her, My people, come out!’
“The road to Zion is paved with humility.””Lord,” I cried, “it’s so hard to say.
Why is it so hard for me to say it plainly?
Why is it so hard for you to say it plainly?”
He answered, “Because the deception is so great.
“Christianity is a religion, and religious men are caught in its web.
Who can hear Me,” said the Lord, “or
who can hear My prophets when it is said of Christianity that it, as a religious system, is a false religion?
Who can understand when I declare that all religion is false?
The greatest deception of all is for men to come to “it” in My name, thinking they have come to Me. I am not an “it.” I am not a religion. I am the living and true God.
I require that men come unto Me and renounce all religion, but who can hear?
“Religion has boundaries. I am boundless. It has its laws and rules and regulations. I offer grace and love and peace.
Religion binds men; I free them. Religion suppresses men; I call them to ascend into the heavenlies. Religion restrains and controls; I release. Religion requires obedience to it; I require obedience to Me.
Yes, obedience is far better than sacrifices. I loathe religion and religious men. They are dangerous and spread the deception to innocent hearts.”
“Lord, you have spoken plainly. So where shall they go who come out of Babylon?”
And He answered simply, “To Jesus.”
“Ascend, My holy ones, ascend into the heavenlies. Sit at My right hand and at My left. I will show you mysteries. I will show you great and glorious things.
“You are My witnesses–My two witnesses–one on My left and the other on My right. On My left is grace and mercy and peace. And on My right is righteousness, justice, and wrath. I am a two-edged sword.
My sword goes forth out of My mouth. It divides the righteous from the unrighteous. It is sharp and quick and sure.
“Behold, I am dividing right from wrong. I am making straight the path. I am exalting valleys. I am moving mountains.
The high will be made low, and the low will be made high.
“If he cannot understand this (the man of sin), let him go down into his house, shut his door and weep and mourn, for surely pity shall come upon his house.”
“How shall they come out of Babylon?” I asked the Lord.
“They shall come out by coming unto Me. Simply leave. The door is opened. The way is made clear.
The prophets have gone before. Do not look back. Do not go back. Simply leave.
“And when they criticize you and call you blasphemous names, let your head be as flint; be silent; be at peace; love them; turn the other cheek, for they so persecuted your fathers before you. “Do not look back.
Do not do anything. Do not say anything. Simply leave. Say in your heart, ‘I have left Babylon and have ascended the high hill of my God. I have come to Mount Zion, to Jesus, the author and finisher of My faith.’
“You cannot take Zion down to Babylon. You have to come out of her. You cannot sing Zion’s songs in Babylon.
They can only be sung in Zion.
“Zion is a place in the Spirit where Jesus is the only thing there is.””Lord,” my questions seemed endless, “this kind of freedom, this independence, this liberty–will it not
be a great threat to those who lead in Babylon?”
“Oh yes, My son, they will take great offense at My holy ones. They will say you are deceived. They will slander, accuse, and defame you. They would plot to kill you if they could. For you, My holy ones, have become what they cannot, because they cannot let go of what they have. Yet, it shall all very soon be taken from them anyway.”
“Tell me, Lord, in view of all of this, have we really heard the gospel yet? What is the gospel? Speak plainly to us.”
“The gospel has been twisted and perverted to fit the molds of traditions and religions–so uniquely so, that men confuse the Christ with their systems and join converts to them rather than to Him.
“But the truth of the gospel is this: that I, the Lord God of Israel, came in human flesh, fulfilled the Law and Prophets, shed My blood of righteousness, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven where I now sit at the right hand of God the Father, where I intercede on behalf of the saints, and through faith
am gathering unto Myself My assembly of holy ones.
They are gathered into Me. They are My general assembly of the first-born.
I have birthed them by My Spirit. I have filled them with My Spirit. I lead them by My Spirit. They are one in faith, hope, spirit, and love. They are everywhere and worship Me in spirit and truth. In obedience they serve Me where they are, out of who they are in Me. And none of this has anything to do with that Thing men call church. They are My body, My temple, My holy ones, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.
They are above institutionalism–beyond doctrines, creeds, and rituals.
They are not religious. They are sanctified.
“This is the good news: that Jesus Christ is Lord. And whosoever shall call upon His name shall be saved.”
“Lord, I know of young pastors, Spirit-filled, who love you and want to go on with you. What shall they do once they see these things?”
“No man having put his hands to the plow and looking back is fit for the kingdom of heaven.”
“Again, I plead with you, my Lord, speak plainly.”
And He said, “He who sees these things and obeys My word will simply come out. He will leave home and family and friends and come out. It is a hard word, who can hear?
“These are they who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.” Rev. 14:4.
“Lord, what shall I do with this word?”
“Shout it from the housetops. Proclaim it to the nations. What has been revealed to you in secret, proclaim it in the open. Be bold! Be forthright! Be strong! Speak it boldly. Shock the nations. Rattle their doors. Shake their foundations. If they cannot stand, they are not of Me. If it can be shut down and closed up, it is not of Me.
If it can be tossed by the wind, it is not of Me. If it produces anger and
violence and malicious gossip and slanderings and lies from those who hear it, they are not of Me, for such things do not come out of Me.
“Behold, I have laid My foundation. I have built My walls. And now I am dropping My plumb line. My word of truth goes forth. That which does not align with My word will be torn down and cast into the sea.
I am sending My prophets again. They go out in the spirit of Elijah, preaching the kingdom of God and calling men everywhere to repent and be immersed into Jesus.
They are My “John the Baptists.” They
go forth to prepare the way of the Lord.
“Shall I return to wed a harlot? Oh, how repulsive that is to Me. Nor shall I take unto Myself those who are joined to her. Search your hearts, My people. Babylon is in the heart. Come out of her and she will come out of you.
Zion, likewise, is in the heart. Come unto Me and I will become your only love.
“Arise. Shine. Come unto Me.”
“Lord,” I prayed, “forgive me for the fear and the intimidation I feel when I think about speaking these things out.”
“You shall know the harlot by this as well, that she has such a powerful control over the hearts and minds of men that they are laden with fear to dare come out of her, let alone speak against her. She is the epitome of idolatry and full of idolatry, and all those joined to her are idolaters.
Now you must realize, My son, that a thing is an idol when men have put their trust and love in it.
And idolaters do not want their idols touched. It is a dangerous thing to touch another man’s idol. As you speak these things, you will be pulling down strongholds and shattering idols–and you will be hated by many for My name’s sake.
“Now the harlot, the mother of harlots, is the spirit of Satan himself. He has hidden behind her skirt and deceived the nations. He is last of all willing for her to be exposed. He is, indeed, the great dragon and will try to consume My bond-servants, those I am sending forth in My name to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom and to expose the harlot and her counterfeits.
“A fierce war has begun in the heavenlies. All hell is loosed to destroy My bond-servants if they could, but they cannot even so much as touch them because they are dead and hidden in Me. This is why the fear is so compelling. It is real. Nevertheless, My bond-servants will, indeed, follow Me wherever I go at all cost to their own lives.”
“Why is it so hard to leave Babylon? Why can’t Christian people just walk away from it?”
“The spirits of Babylon are numerous and very compelling. At the head of the system is the mother of harlots, Jezebel. She is disguised as the bride and, thereby, has deceived the best of hearts. Yet, she is an enticing spirit.
Her seductive ways appeal to the flesh of men and their desire for power, position, and riches.
Working under her are all the Ahabs: the kings and rulers in the churches, spirits operating through prideful men. The Ahabs are the Nicolaitans–the conquerors of the people.
They are the clergy system that elevates itself above the people. Working for them are such other demons as pride, haughtiness, control, position, authority, power, possessiveness, domination, ownership, jealousy.
“These spirits rule the churches, the systems, and the people under them. They rule through spirits of fear and intimidation. Cooperating with these are spirits of tradition, dogmatism, sectarianism, doctrine, sentimentalism, denominationalism; the warring spirits are confusion, hatred, division, divisiveness, bitterness, and the like.
These have holds on men and are strongholds in the minds of men. But at the root of them all are the despicable spirits of religion.
“For men to come out, they must first understand these things. Then they must repent of them and come unto Me with a pure heart. I will deliver them. I will separate them and cleanse their defiled hearts.
I will dress them in readiness and prepare them for My banqueting table. I will feed them the good fodder of My word instead of the indigestible twigs of men’s mind. Who can digest the human intellect?
Who can swallow its lies and deceits? The answer is everyone. For man is stupid and devoid of knowledge. But he who has My Spirit will hunger and thirst after Me, and I will reveal My nature to him. He will come unto Me, and I will sup with him and he with Me. He is the one who can come out of the harlot.
“He is the one who will come out of the harlot, for I shall lose not one whom the Father has given to Me–none, except the son of perdition.
“The harlot is everywhere. She is in the ministry, seeking to promote herself in power, position, and riches. She is in the ministers–the Ahabs, the Nicolaitans. She plays politics to promote herself.
She lies, cheats, defrauds; she will do anything to get ahead. She is full of ambition and selfish desires. She is an abomination to Me, the very opposite of My nature and of the nature of My bride.
“This, My son, is why I say a woman is to be quiet and gentle and submissive, for she bears the joy of the bride in her heart. She loves her lover. The harlot loves herself.
The bride gives of herself. The harlot takes unto herself. The bride hides herself in hiddenness.
The harlot exposes herself–even in her
doorway. She advertises herself and entices men to come into her, be joined to her for the pleasures of the flesh. Self is flesh. Anything for Self is flesh.
This is why it is the abomination that makes desolate My holy place. My holy place is the spirit of men. When that spirit is defiled by the flesh, that is an abomination to Me.
“The harlot is the flesh nature of man that has taken its rule in the churches–self-aggrandizement, men seeking to increase themselves in flocks. They count numbers and glory in them. They own their own sheep and call them Mine. They lie, for they are not My sheep. They make disciples unto themselves, of themselves, and for themselves. They fleece their flocks for their own sordid gain.
These are not My ministers. They are hirelings and Nicolaitans.
“The harlot is ugly and hides her ugliness in gaudy garments and decorates her face in lavishing colors.
She hides behind these things. She is ashamed of her sin. Yet, she will not repent. She cannot repent.
She is evil from within.”
“What about the harlot, Lord? Who or what is the harlot spirit? How can we know when she is operating?”
The trumpet call is sounding: “Come out of her, My people!” “Let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach.” Heb. 13:13.
Dare we face our idols, cleanse the temple, and return to the God of our salvation?
